when you could that. appears maybe that's what this woman thought in china. this is a clothes hanger from a window in an apartment building and apparently this woman reports saying she had been doing a bit of drinking. managed to make her way out to the clothes hanger. this is where you're supposed to drape your clothes and dry them off. sitting on one bar as you can see and hanging on to the two other bars there. well that one bar looks like it's clearly bent under her weight. >> that's no good. >> hopefully going to hold her. >> guess what? firefighters had to enter and break into the apartment unit to try to get her from the inside. and it they got there just in the nick of time literally. watch this. as these rescuers are trying to grasp this woman, they're strapping a safety belt around her. that's the first thing they do. as they go in to do that watch this. >> hurry up. >> oh! wow. they haven't even latched. >> no. >> the safety belt. >> just as they get that belt
